There'll be a random draw tomorrow for 2013 Winter Classic tickets among everyone who signed up. Per Mirtle tweet from globe and mail...

Okay WHAT?!?
Where is the warning, what is going on? Did I miss my incredibly small chance?

Edited by Matt, 06 August 2012 - 09:54 AM.
Updated to reflect that Winter Classic ticket purchase codes have been sent to fans as of Friday, 8/3.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

The reason we didn't hear about this... is it is Toronto's tickets.

People need to focus on the content of the post, and not the person posting it.

If you don't have anything to add other than a smartass comment, move on and don't post in the thread.

I'm tired of the posts where people are mocking some of the previous overreactions here about free agency. While some people may be overreacting to the state of the Wings, it's at least an honest attempt to discuss the situation. The mocking posts are simply trolling and make the situation even worse.

Stay on topic or people will be getting vacations.

Just to let everyone know, I am in this drawing. Considering the rabidity of Leafs fans, my chances are slim to none. The drawing is to be held today, and winners will be notified within 2 weeks via email how to activate their account and purchase tickets. IF I am selected, these tickets will be made available immediately here on LGW. I have my own source for tickets. I'll post in the Dumbo Drop thread IF I hear from the Leafs organization.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I signed up months ago through the Leafs' site just because they had info up before the Red Wings did. It's been weird getting things in my e-mail box from the Leafs, to say the least.

I had signed up for it also, as well did the lady. Hopefully someone gets to win some!!! If anyone doesn't remember, when they first had announced the winter classic you had a chance to sign up for it.

I couldn't even begin to tell you how I signed up for a Toronto lottery. An initial browse through my email has yielded nothing. If I can find something later on, I'll post it again. I would suspect, however, that the opportunity has long since passed. We are talking Leafs fans, you know.

Yeah it was offered awhile back ago when information just was starting to come out after the announcement. Still don't understand how if you get a "overwhelming" amount of people signing up you magically push the date back. Set the date, and reinforce the date. If they weren't apart of the deal, they don't rate the chance to win it!! :baby:

I'm in too, and so is my cousin.

Ok be honest, if you win, are you going to go, or are you going to sell the tickets on ebay or stubhub? My cousin and I have considered both options :innocent:

I'm registered with both the Wings and the Leafs. I have previously stated that if I have extra, they will be offered up to members here. Not sure how I'm going to decide who gets first crack when I do. (Notice I say when!)

I clearly missed the boat on these sign ups. Suck. I wish we'd hear more about ticket sales.
